Kim - Quite the challenge, but know you're up to it!  Wish I was close enough to give you some assistance.  frank

Kim - great work!!  I wish my dad would have had the PolyAll back when.  He did most of woodwork and spent a lot of cutting and time shaping, I the mechanical.  Your car will be fantastic when done.  frank

Doug, from the pictures, that is a nice looking roadster and nice price, too.

Old Man, caps for sale: Don Summer, 105 Kinross, Clawson MI, 48017.  248.435.6115 or 435.2916 no web or email.  From "The Plymouth Bulletin" Parts Reproducers section.

Advertising 28-29, 31-32 parking cap; 31-32 goddess; 33 goddess (lock-on) and hood ornament; 34 & 35 ship.  Did not list a 30, but might be worth a call.  I bought one for 29.  Very nice, and you pay for it!

Gary, I too am sorry to hear - that's terrible fortune!

You and Tinkeys are correct - rinse/soak in a lot of water to dilute.  I would add plain baking soda to the water, sodium bicarbonate - a mild base, to help neutralize the sulfuric acid.  This solution can then be thoroughly rinsed.  Never had to use on fabric, but have cleaned battery terminals with it.

Good Luck!

Jason,  puzzling, I don't have another address.  I received your 1st email with 15 files attached and your 2nd asking if 48 pages were received.  Did you get my reply?    frank

Sure Chet, go ahead and post it there.

Maybe it would be helpful to identify what number is cast in the carb body. e.g. I believe an RT-08 can be configured to a Carter 130S or 130SA for a 29U, which is on my engine.  The DRT-08 to a 209S (209-S) and maybe the 210-S as listed in Master Parts list for a PA.

Hi John,
I don't know, I'm guessing your looking at Plate 37, my copy of the April 1, 1934 Master Parts List.  For those not having a copy, this shows several part #'s for this carb.  Some are exclusive Plymouth P/N, most are Carter.

Carb (export only)-U after Y-082-LR U S built, 30-U up to U-237404   **131-SA
Carb..........................................................30-U up to U-225814     306203
Carb...........................................30-U after engine No. U-225814   **156-S
Carb (export only)-30-U after engine No. U-237407........................   **158-S
Carb(RHD only).......................................30-U up to No. U-239017    306204
Carb(RHD only)..............................30-U after engine No. U-239017   **157-S

**Carter number.

I also have copies of 3 CARTER CARBURETOR CORP book pages, one of which says

Form 4304 Replacing Form 4246  PLYMOUTH  "30-U" - 1930-31   Carbureter 156S, Revised 1932

This drawing is the "short" accelerating pump.  The diagrams of the 130S-130SA (1929-30) and D-209S (1931) also shows a short pump.

It appears Chrysler was having fun with folks like us who are attempting to get these things period correct.  At this date, I'm not sure any one alive and coherent really knows for sure!  Not a slam- just who knows what was what 83 odd years hence now-a-days??


I'm guessing the 306203 & 306204 are "long vertical" pump, but don't really know.

Tony, looks cool!  My brother-in-law doesn't live near, but don't think he could pin-stripe that well.
I couldn't help but notice the car behind you with the luggage rack hanging off the spare tire.  This gives me an idea for the future.

Reading about all the wild fires and excessive heat in Australia is troubling.  I hope you and everyone are safe.

Very interesting, Ian.  What weight oil do you use?  I have always used grease in all areas with Alemite fittings and 85-140 gear lube in the transmission (gear box) and rear axle.
